Running Mind

My loving daughter woke up at 1:30 and I haven’t been able to go back to sleep! Ugh! My mind has been racing with thoughts at full speed. Lesson plans, yearbook ideas, vacations, Pinterest searches and everything in between! I’m going to be tired in the morning! My poor students…

Long time!!

It has been way too long since I have been on WordPress! So many things have been going on since my last post! School (work) has started up again and I have hit the ground running! My students this year are great, so far, and I am loving this year. I feel like I am more prepared with my lessons, and since I was so sick last year, while I was pregnant, this year I am feeling so much more energetic! I am really looking forward to seeing what this school year brings.

My daughter is doing really well! If you haven’t read any of my previous posts, my daughter was born in December, at 30 weeks. We spent 50 days in the NICU and we have been home since the end of February. The doctor said that she will not experience any long term effects of her prematurity! YAY! The only thing we are working on right now is trying to bulk her up! She weighs 12 pounds 3 ounces now, which is huge compared to her 2 pounds 14 ounces. She is such an incredible little human being! Last week she started rolling over from her back to her tummy! YAY! I am so proud of her and how she has come over the last few months.

My anxiety has been been under control over the last few months, and I am so thankful. I still have days where it feels so heavy, and uncomfortable, but I am able through it. My husband has also been very supportive whenever my anxiety has shown up. He will remind me how strong I am, and let me know how it will pass.

Well, that is my life in a quick few paragraphs! I am going to try and commit to writing more often, because I totally miss you guys! Blogging is so therapeutic!

Still taking school pictures at 30?!

yes, another perk of being a teacher is that we get school pictures every year! LOL! I’m going to be honest! I actually enjoy school pictures! This year, mine isn’t too bad! My hair looks giant though! I suppose that’s a good thing to be remembered for in a yearbook! 

  

Oh! And here is a picture I found on my phone today! Apparently one of my students got me when I didn’t know! I was hacked! Lol! They are lucky I love them! 

  

My Wordpress Birthday!

Today is my 1 year WordPress birthday! Thank you to everyone who has supported me this year as I have been going through the healing process with my anxiety disorder. I have come such a long way and WordPress has contributed to a huge part of my growth! 

  

Elle Time! 

I really enjoyed my day of being home by myself! I cuddled with my dogs, worked out, watched Gilmore Girls and Avengers and ended the day With painting! It was a blast! These last few days of summer are sacred so I am going to fill them with my favorite activities! However, in spite of partaking in my favorite activities, I must say that the best part of my day was that I didn’t have an ounce of anxiety! Nothing! And it was beautiful! 

   
    
    
    
 

Pushing through

Today I woke up with my good friend anxiety. I am not sure why I have it today, but nevertheless I am going to push onward and choose happiness today. Will it be more difficult than usual? Yes. But that does not mean that I am going to give up! 

To all of you who are like me today and have unexplained, or explained anxiety: remember you control your thoughts and you can win the battle! 

I PASSED!!

I PASSED MY SOCIAL STUDIES TEACHER TEST!!! Since I have taken and passed both the social studies and language arts teacher tests, I am now qualified to teach general education in this subjects! This is huge because I am already highly qualified in special education K-12, but now I am able to teach combined classes! Yay!
